Discontent at lack of representation in AC: Unity protagonists

    1. Petition by

      Jessica Smith

      Edinburgh, United Kingdom

This petition has been created to express the disappointment of Ubisoft fans at the lack of representation of people of colour and females in the four-protagonist line-up of the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity. We believe that the Assassin's Creed series, a franchise with infinite scope, does not reflect the needs of its demographic well enough: the lack of a female character has been referred to as "unfortunate, but...a reality of game development", and the possibility of an ethnic minority protagonist seems to have not even been breached. Representation is important, and in a game which boasts 5000 NPCs, this is not good enough.

      Ubisoft, seriously "it would take double the work"... how about "appealing to double the customers would get you double the revenue"? Unless you are saying at women's money is not good for you.

      My wife and two daughters loved your previous installments of the series, but with this, I am hard pressed to say we'll continue investing into it, as I do not believe it is ok to simply erase a gender because it is inconvenient for you.

      All games should allow a choice between male or female. Gaming in this era is both male and female so why should the games we play all cater to one gender?

      The excuse given at teh lack of women in the game is unacceptable and a clear lie. Either the Ubisoft team is a team of unqualified monkies who don't know how to animate women (Which is not true due to women being in previous AC games) or they were clearly not wanting to make women in this game (unacceptable all the same).
